Wrote a bash/jq script we're using to do rolling deployments to AWS EC2 instances & S3 buckets without taking an outage. In short, it watches the state of the node in the elastic load balancer, and once our target instance is removed from the ELB, the deployer does the app stop/deploy/start and ensures the node is back up before continuing on to the next. Replaced manual Linux command line tasks with conditional shell scripts that run on Jenkins to reduce the teams' effort from minutes to seconds. Scripted app restarts for Tomcat and Weblogic. Configured deployments for production front-end/middletier to match our automated method in lower environments, replacing what was a manual process. I also install and upgrade Atlassian applications like Bamboo, Confluence, and Crucible. Configured Atlassian authentication to filter on users' LDAP group to reduce the license cost by limiting users to those that need the app. Made a script (bash & json) to put all services in PagerDuty into maintenance mode for those hopefully rare times when it's needed, and saves one the effort of individually clicking every...single...service in PagerDuty's UI. Active member of a successful project that allowed us to do zero downtime deployments in spite of monolithic apps with many intertwined dependences. For that I also made simple PHP dashboards to show which track was live to the public at the moment, the status of nodes in a pools on the F5, which gives us an at-a-glance look at our core environments. Some light experience with Chef and Ruby, working to master those soon. From January 2014 to Present (2 years) Software Release Coordinator & Release Engineer @ Coordinate and lead the public & enterprise facing software releases for University of Phoenix and subsidiaries. On peak nights that would include 10+ release engineers deploying 100 distinct change requests to hundreds of linux or windows hosts in both our local data center and the Amazon cloud (AWS). Ensure changes have proof of testing and adequate instruction to both release and rollback if needed. Assign changes to our Release Engineers based on software platform and area of expertise. Conduct the release nights as point of contact between IT Operations, Release, and Development. As a release engineer, I would deploy changes to Linux and Windows test & production environments using ruby scripts, shell scripts, our in-house automated deployment suite, Linux command line, or RPDing to Windows servers. Use MobaXterm's multi-execution mode to modify multiple servers simultaneously: pushing packages, bouncing apps, changing permissions & ownership, or configuring bash-deployed applications to migrate them onto our in-house deployment suite. Update configuration files under version control using command line Subversion. From October 2011 to January 2014 (2 years 4 months) Founder and Writer @ I created this site originally for personal use, as a way to keep recipes and techniques I’ve tried in the past on hand for future reference.
